Day 5 - Priorities

Day 5 -Priorities!

This is a hard one for me. I honestly try but feel I fall short. I am working on applying God's Grace to myself. As flylady would say "A job done imperfect, is still done!" I can't let my perfectionism keep me down. I am a daughter of the King and my priorities need to be in line with the Word.

So, Yes I do try to get up every morning and spend time in the Word. I am currently working on reading through the bible in 90 days. I am almost finished! Something that also helps me stay motivated in this is my Good Morning Girls! (For more information head on over to www.goodmorninggirls.org)

That makes God my #1

#2 Is my wonderful Husband.
 I try to watch my tone and be respectful to him. I try to make sure I am honoring him at all times. I desire to be his friend and companion, his soft landing, the person he runs to, and the person the Bible tells me to be for him. I should always be his helpmeet!

#3 My 5 wonderful kids.
 Between babies and homeschooling I am very busy. I need time to get all the chaos under wraps so that I can effectively school the children while still showering everyone with God's grace and mercy.

#4 My house
 Yes, the house needs to be a haven. A warm place where everyone feels welcome. A place where messes can be made and cleaned together. I want my children to remember me as the Mom who did things with them. Not, the Mom who was always too busy cleaning to do anything with them. I am still struggling in finding the happy medium here. But with God I am getting closer.

#5 Would be myself.
 Most days I tend to forget that I even make this list. I try to remember that I need to stay healthy so that I can do the first 4 things! I know that I am important I am just sometimes so busy with life that I forget about me.

If you had to list your top  priorities what would they be?

  1. ouch, my priorities, when written out would be in the same order as yours, but I struggle with actually living the way I desire. Walk'n the talk is really hard many days. I am in need of re-arranging my day...your post is a good reminder, thanks :) -I'm visiting from the Friday blog hop, it's very nice to "meet" you!
